Amen! sister

Relationships are everything to me...everything else in life is just a tool to enhance them.

Fear in my view is created by the value that someone gives to a possible loss.
Fear can easily be controlled by: negating a value, by belief or by drug. Famous navigators in time of stress just got drunk to overcome their fears. In warfare troops are drugged to promote aggressiveness or passiveness, both a way of overcoming fear.
Fearlessness may also be the product of ignorance or plain stupidity, the failure of recognizing a possible loss.
It is impossible to know if some humans can be immune to fear because it is normally not possible to communicate with a deceased person.

Really? How funny... I always think 'so how's THAT a problem??'

And as for fear. Fear is just a way for our body to tell our brain to pay attention. In the same way safe is not a place, its a state of mind.

I pay attention to my fears and keep myself in a safe mindset, no matter where I am.

ain't what ya do, it's the way that ya do it...

For women and teenage boys it's not a problem but when you become "un homme dans certain age" you probably wish the blood would go somewhere else where it can carry off waste from the beer you drank or provide oxegen to the brain so you can think of something other then breasts!
